Location: Athens, Greece

Here we are in ATHENS and I am still writing about Amsterdam.....anyway back to the story...yes hotel staff didn't treat the girls very well nor us once we got back. Still we had a great time, hired bikes for a day that was hilarious.

Flew to Venice on KLM...very nice...and had a wonderful time....well went we got there that is..another holiday story!!! Got bus in and had to catch ferry to the part of the island we were on only and to walk aways to it with our heavy bags (because we have brought to much stuff with us...have been remindered a few times..don't worry he did too) then once we got them on this small thing got told the wrong stop twice...so ending up walk f...n miles because nobody could under stand the address themselves..got more help off other tourists. Anyway worked it out in the end and the apartment was really big and very nice and we were close to everything....Only 10 min walk from St marks square. Had a great time, Venice beautiful and went on a very romantic gondola ride one nite with the kids, also toured the grand canal with guide very interesting. All went well .but freaking out about how heavy the bags were going to be when we got to the airport...oh yes the airport bloody thought we were on the wrong bus it took an hour to get out to another village where the plane left (cause we on budget airline)....then racing to get bags checked in and then, then resorting the bags ( oh I bet you wish you were there)...but we did it yay..lol...oh I was high fiveing myself because so relived...even more relived when I realised that had 20 kgs each on next flight...lol

Now we are have flown in to Chania (Crete) big island in Greece....OMG it's has to be one of the most beautiful towns/islands we have been to.. Up there with Hoi An in Vietnam. We did't get there until after 12 in the morning...got taxi, woman in stilettos who loaded the boot her self wouldn't,t let us help her and lovely...she got us to Hotel and the man was out there ready and waiting for us...how nice...cute....tucked the girls in and Tommy and I went out for a drink, just around the corner...The atmosphere was gorgeous...omg just loved it!

Location: Santorini, Greece

So much has happen....loved Paris had awesome flat...(to anybody that wants address). We went to the louve, was huge and loved to so much to see but on time limit....Mona was beautiful and right across from her was the next fav "the last dinner" it took up most of the wall " i was rapped that the two were in the same room.

Got train the next day to Amsterdam, another great trip....took a picnic aboard with lovely fresh produce. Hotel well located next to square and really nice....and great staff until the robbery! Last nite went our for dinner and came back to drop girls off so mum and dad could have a nite out and the girls IPads had been stolen.

Location: Paris, France

Hi all, have been a bit slack on the dairy but here we go.....Tommy and Tailah dyed their hair red and we went to the Robbie Williams concert at Wembley Stadium...it was awesome...the stadium was awesome...his first concert since 2006.. Had a great nite...then next day dyed Tommy's hair black as not liking red...went a bit pink..hehe....had a look around at went to Abbey Rd where the Beatles did a album and had photo crossing the zebra crossing....a bit awkward as heaps of traffic but a laugh anyaway..bussed back to Oxford St had a beer and on to Coventry Gardens. Had a quick walk through...heaps of buskers doing their thing some really interesting...absolutely gorgous square with markets, wine bars etc had another beer...really starting to feel the tired legs then walked to Soho (Asian restaurant) nearly missed it but not there in the end.mmm

Us girls taxied to the Victoria Theatre (over the bloody walking) and Tommy got train mmmm, to see Billy Elliot....awesome...girls loved it and meeee...glad we did it the theatre was quite small with heaps of atmosphere...really thought you were back in time.

Caught train to Paris..only a couple of hours and nice and easy. Arrived about 2.50 pm and caught tube to station just around corner to apartment...again to easy. Love the apartment, so French and cute. We are quite central mind you had a few problems coming back today....got off at the right station but came out wrong entrance and got lost for a bit...mmmm

Went to the Eiffel Tower and had a fast track semi tour pass, fantastic idea, the line to get in was unbelievable. They get about 25000 people visit a day. We did not line up, yay, busy as up there but had great views, we only went to the second level the line to the third was shocking just about went around the second level and only small lift to go up, have been up there before so was not too disappointed and the others were happy with what we saw, still really fantastic, it is just gorgeous ....a highlight! Had lunch on water front had trained it too Notre Dame. Another line up so the rest weren't interested in going in even though it moved quite fast...was getting really hot...like to mention that it was the first clear day for week or weeks, they had a strike on the tower last week for a few days. Lucky. We will go back tomorrow earlier.n

Location: London, UK

Us girls brought a couple of tops and bags, had yummy Turkish wrap at the locks and watched the boats go through...a couple of beers and bused it home through thr suburbs, Nottingham Hill, Shepard's Bush etc. London reminds me of Melbourne and Christchurch just love it. Early night.
Yesterday up early on Big Bus Tours (open aired)..paid 72 qid for on and off bus route to all the sites. Great day and saw heaps as well on the river cruise, which probably was the highlight with the one of the crew doing a running comendtray of the sites...very funny...had nice Thai meal around corner from Hostel another early night...buggered. Hostel well located lots going on and have a local already two doors down which we are sitting having Guinness now. Having quiet day...pretty cold today...have Robbie Williams concert tonight...yahoo! Holly in bed or at computer downstairs...feeling tired. Tommy going through middle aged crisis...has just brought dye for hair...hehe.....to be continued

Location: London, UK

We hired a taxi in dubai and went site seeing for a couple of hours...a great way to get around quickly with no fuss...it was early not hot and no traffic. This place is an architects paradise. Went to the "open"beach mmmmm, Palm Island - amazing - . Dubai is very hot everything seems to be dusty but clean streets all the plants look like they are just hanging in there, it only rains once a year, they get there water piped in from Pakistan ...no hussall and bussall out in the streets but the malls are packed with people....might have Something to do with the heat! Went to Dubai Mall not thinking the girls wearing shorts and singlets, get to the doors and there is a sign saying "please have respect by having shoulders and knees covered up" oops...wasn't going to back to get changed just copped the stares...wasn't that bad. The mall was amazing with a three story waterfall and aquarium,ice ring and the most beautiful Shops, loads of lollies and chocolate shops and cafes...what else is there to do when you can,t drink!!
Was really good to see.
We flew out about 3 pm for another seven hours. Girls coping well not sure about Tommy....

Arrived at Gatwick and managed to get to Victoria Station okay...bit heated and hecked with the bags...carrying them up and down the bloody stairs to the tube, managed in the end to catch the right train to Bayswater Station where the hostels is butttt...arrived a day toooo f...nn early...had wrong date so we actually have five days here. If that wasn't enough...hostel booked out so decided to leave bags there and look for another accommodation....carried them down stairs and bottle of Tequila broke in the carry on bag all over the bloody floor....I just wanted to cry...where was Tommy....anyway I got it sorted and found hotel around corner for the night mmmm 10.00. It's very small rooms but clean and who cares...had great sleep...bring on better day today...London here we come!

Location: Dubai , United Arab Emirates

Hi, we have Arrived safe and tied. Was a long haul but went rather quickly if 11 hours can. Bloody hot here! Hotel was a let down was expecting something quite flash but noooo it's quite ordinally but its clean and spacious. We had a swim in a hot pool not so refreshing but got us moving. Taxis are cheap so went the Dubai Mall, and the shopping there is unbelievable.....money,money...just beautiful shops and the souk was gorg not to mention the three story aquarium, waterfall and ice ring. Never seen so many lollies and chocolate shops I mean what else is there to do when you can't drink! The architect all the buildings is something else.. Well are stuffed now and back for what's looking like a early night. :)

Location: singapore, Singapore

Hello everyone
Sorry have been slack with entries but has been hard in Cambodia and even thailand with not enough time or slow really slow internet and by time checked major stuff was over it!
But we have had a fantasic holiday, with no real upsets, and girls were gems. Obviously good age to travel andthey excepted all the hassel and bussel, and having to move every two or three days with sometimes hours on end of travelling on not so good transport. They and us have come back relaxed, maybe too relaxed, and have been, seen and done things that will stay with them for a lifetime.
So not looking forward to work. Tommy and I have a anxiety attack everytime we think about it!!.

See Ya Soon Jules

Tuesday, 25 August 2009

Location: Ho An, Vietnam

Hi Guys
Well so much has happened since I last made an entry. We went to temples, one day pass $20us each except Holly she was free. First one we saw was Ankgor Wat, it is amazing and so big, is was soooo hot and we hot fried just walking up to it, a bit a relief walking around inside, then on to Ankgor Thom – which is made up of a few temples and had heaps of cover from trees to walk between them. Have taken loads of photos.... Tuk tuk picked us up again to go to the temple with the trees growing over it (which name escapes me right now and haven’t got book on me) but my god, it looks like something out of a Harry Potter movie, was my favourite and of course was when the batteries of camera ran out!!!! got a couple though........ Was a big hot day and was glad to get back. Siep Reap was a great place, but hard to get anyway else unless going to Thailand from there.
We came back thru Battabong, since heard it was a good spot, but really was only a stopover for us in between the two 6 hours bus journeys. Then jumped on plane, OH LOVE the plane, to HoChiMinh and then arrived in Nha Trang. Big beautiful beaches and plenty of well deserved swimming. First day hired a bungalow (umbrella thingy) with beach chairs and chilled for most of the day or until we looked liked tomatoes, as Tailah was referring to her sister’s face! Yeah got a bit of colour!
Had a minor hiccup with travel arrangements – hotel booked overnight train out to Danang,for us but after checking a couple of travel agencies found out that the story he spun Tommy was all you know what and when we got back to hotel, as you can imagine, he wore it, Tommy roared and he was shaking neediest to say we got back the extra money he pocked back... So after that spend a hour changing tickets because also found out there was a later train that suited us better.
Nha Trang is a beautiful city and fantastic beaches, the water is warm, we paid a bit extra ($40uswith all of us in one room ) and the hotel we stayed at had a pool on the 15th floor with a great view of the city, it was nice having a bit of luxury and lift!! Doing alot of walking and knee get a bit sore at times , the food is great and have had some wonderful experiences, girls are living on spag bol, spring rolls (fresh and fried) rice and egg and chicken rolls, they each have had a chilli moment not too hot! Yesterday went on cable cars over to VinPearl Island, Nats and Ged will get this, pay one price which I thing was $300,000 for us and $210,000 for the girls (which is about $25us for us) for the day and its a bit like water world and dreamworld wrapped in one but differently better. Has an amazing underwater world which blew us away, and all games you could think of like timezone, only missing the crowds you get at all of them. So the girls were in heaven, we had a brilliant day and to finish they had this light show with water.
Went back to hotel different one we hired just for a shower and keep bags at for the day until we caught the train, OMG that is truly an experience, got to sleeper and has been taken over by locals so they got kick out except mother and baby, anyway its three bunks each side and enough room to turn over, a mattress the size of blanket, never mind we slept well after our huge day, never heard baby once... was a 12 hour trip but enjoyed it, better than the bloody bus!!
Have noticed big difference with Vietnamese not speaking English as well as Cambodians.

For thoughs who want to know mum has started her treatment.

holly here GRILS SEND ME A MESSAGE please sorry it is just that Tailah is geting all these messages and i haven't got any yet so can u please send me one TA

Tuesday, 18 August 2009

Location: Cambodia

Well another big day yesterday, We went to the Killing Fields by tuk tuk, took 3/4 hour. It was good getting in amounst the traffic, having a few smiles and laughs, we are an interesting to them as they are to us. Man, how many people can you fit into a van, mini van, oh about 20 if you have the back door open and about another 5-10 on top depending on balance!
Killing Fields were horrific, what are you thinking when you kill inisint men, woman, children and babies... We walked around the mass graves in silence and read the history, saw the thousands of skulls in the temple, all trying to comprehene what we were seeing. The girls took it in there stride proprobably not really understanding the full extend of it, mind you the questions on who do this and whiy were hard to answer, trying telling them that their government, prime minister ordered this, whole families had to be killed so there wasn,t any come back later in life...
Got back to Okay Hotel and Tommy relented so got "VIP" bus out to Siep Reap -has toilet- cost us an extra $3 each, all up $7 US each for a 6 hour journey. Man, we got front row, when we put bags on the boys said "put your seatbelts on"laughing, thought they said that because of our seats, shit couldn't open my eyes for the first hour ! Didn't seem to worry the girls at all, my knuckles were white- once we were out of town the driver seemed to relax a bit- or was that me - and rest of journey good, even though book said roads were alot better, still pretty bumpy. The country side is fantasic, just beautful, it truly is a pretty place. You don't get sick of looking out the window, cows, water buffalo, (whom we had to dodge a few times) pigs -black one, pink ones, spotted ones oh yeah!! For thoses who don't know Holly loves pigs! Anyways got here an hour early - makes a change and proprobaly cause paid extra bucks for fast driver. Staying at Yellow Hotel - was suggested by Okay Hotel (brother and sister) but they picked us up, free, hotel has recently been renovated and very nice, flashes one so far and the cheapist!!!
Girls still aspleep - quiet day today, have a lookies, can see hotel with pool from here so might suss out swim. Hit the temples tomorrow.

From Lee
Hi Jules,

No what you mean about Dubai mall pretty amazing at first glacé , all about money money . It's like a big machine feeding the need for more, something so unsettling about seeing very young toddlers in shopping centres at 11 pm at night. Beautiful on the surface but I don't know something seems the be missing in Dubai the place doesn't seem to have a heart, it really is about money, making it or spending it . I not really sure what I feel about it at this point, their are things that I really enjoyed about the place , got over the shopping thing really quick , had some amazing food. no problem having a drink or too. Great for a couple of days, but misses the energy of somewhere like Bangkok, Hanoi, London , Paris and Berlin maybe it is the fact the everything is new and really don't get the feeling of time and history in the place.
Will the Tequila Jules what can I say you should be drinking it not dropping it, would have been the last thing you would have wanted after a room mix up and long flight. I'm sure you a had a few drinks since to make up for the loss. I have a pint of me and hopefully it cold. Check out www.airbnb.com if you are looking for accommodation on the way amazing website, you can rent everything from studios, unit, houses even castles everywhere. I use it all time how, and works out better and sometime cheaper than hotel or hostels. I used it in Paris and Dubrovnik on my last trip, great way to leav e like a local for a couple of days or longer. fantastic from family's like having a home away from home.
Anyway look forward to reading more, travel safe.... Big kisses to Tommy and the girls.... Love and miss you always Lee. Xxxxxx

Hey you guys, OMG sounds like you are all having the best time!!! We are having a pretty good time here too! The animals are great. Wilson and Lily are best mates - not sure where Tom will fit into that relationship when he gets back LOL. Puddy spends most his/her days out on adventures but is always home at night and squishes himself/herself right up against my belly (I think it must be the warmest place - beside the baby) nearly pushes me out of the bed would you believe!! What is Puddy - a girl or a boy? Milco got a treat seed ball thing the other day and my god he can make a mess! But I'm pretty sure he really liked it! The chooks and crabs are also good - but ofcourse all the animals (from Noahs Ark) miss you and can't wait to see you all in a couple of weeks!! Oh and can you ask Mum to send through your arrival info when she has a chance, so that we can come get you when you get back. Love you all xxxx PS Piggy sends his love Holls
